The canonical equation of adaptive dynamics for life histories: from fitnessreturns to selection gradients and Pontryagin's maximum principle.
(2015) In Journal of Mathematical Biology 74(4). p.11251152 Abstract
 This paper should be read as addendum to Dieckmann et al. (J Theor Biol 241:370389, 2006) and Parvinen et al. (J Math Biol 67: 509533, 2013). Our goal is, using little more than highschool calculus, to (1) exhibit the form of the canonical equation of adaptive dynamics for classical life history problems, where the examples in Dieckmann et al. (J Theor Biol 241:370389, 2006) and Parvinen et al. (J Math Biol 67: 509533, 2013) are chosen such that they avoid a number of the problems that one gets in this most relevant of applications, (2) derive the fitness gradient occurring in the CE from simple fitness return arguments, (3) show explicitly that setting said fitness gradient equal to zero results in the classical marginal value...
